An Inconvenient Sequel--poetic response


In these days when the sun is darkened by smoke
And the moon is turned to blood
In these days of earthquake, fire and flood
In these days unprecedented, unprecedented,
In these days when vain and fatuous men
Hurl words of mushroom cloud, ash and inferno,
In this dark time
When millions flee from famine, war and storm
We turn to you, The One
Our only refuge.
This day you set before us life and death. 
Strengthen us, make firm our tongues
To speak your truth
To men of war and oil.
Let us choose life!
